What to do after you are injured on someone else’s property

You may be injured on someone else’s property – a home or business. These include slip-and-fall accidents, dog bites or being attacked/stolen from due to insecurity. The Colorado Revised Statute Section 13-21-115 provides in-depth information about persons injured on someone else’s premises to guide them.

In addition to this information, you need to follow several steps after the accident to make your claim stronger. They include:

Take pictures

You should take pictures of your injuries, the scene of the accident and the dangerous condition that led to your injuries or damages. Also, look around to check if video surveillance is available. The property may not give you the footage, but knowing that cameras face the location may be helpful.

Get medical attention

If you are seriously injured, you need to get medical attention immediately. Call an ambulance and ask an eyewitness to help you gather evidence. If you can spend time at the scene, you should visit a doctor afterward- the same day. A doctor will examine and determine the nature and extent of your injuries.

Keep your clothes and shoes

You should keep the dirty, torn or bloody clothes and shoes you had when the accident occurred. They may be used as evidence to explain the occurrence.

Report the accident to the property owner or anyone in charge

A property owner or anyone in charge of it should be aware of your accident. They may ask you to give a written report of what happened. Explain the incident but avoid statements that can put you at fault. Obtain a copy of the report. Further, do not sign anything without professional guidance.

A premises liability claim may be complicated as insurance companies always try to limit payouts. It will be best to understand your case to make informed decisions to get fair compensation.
